This case concerns 2x licences no. 2178/031148 and 2178/030773 issued to FN Herstal for delivery to Saudi Arabia of ML1 smooth bore weapons. The Court rejects the first two arguments, but finds it necessary to examine the third argument, namely the alleged violation of criteria 6 of the Common Position, and reopens the proceedings on this basis.
